Steve Wozniak: I think we've seen massive value creation in Bitcoin

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak recently sat down with Bloomberg to discuss the future Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

In an interview with Bloomberg’s Yousef Gamal El-Din, Steve Wozniak is asked how the massive value destruction seen in Bitcoin has affected his outlook on the cryptocurrency. Wozniak rejects the premise, saying, “I don’t think I can buy that we’ve seen massive value destruction, I think we’ve seen massive value creation.

“Psychology will often drive stock market dips, like ‘oh my gosh, gotta get out now!’ The psychology factor is kind of a fear thing. And there was this idea that Bitcoin might go up to $40,000 and it went up to $20,000”

Wozniak states that he has bought Bitcoin in the past, but never as an investor. “I only had Bitcoin to experiment with and buy and sell things around the world, how to travel and find restaurants that would accept Bitcoin. That sort of thing.”
